Comptoir Gascon’s foodie ethos “comes straight from the verdant pastures of Gascony”, writes a fan of starry Club Gascon’s rustic upstart cousin. It’s all about la douceur de vivre (‘the sweetness of life’) as the kitchen delivers textbook versions of the regional classics in a shabby-chic setting of brick walls, blue velvet chairs and heavy timber tables. Duck, foie gras and truffles get top billing on a menu that’s noted for its “bounteous portions” and “really good value”: the famous ‘deluxe’ burger is an “elegant proposition”, while piggy treats, rillettes, confits and cassoulet turn the carnivorous dial up to 11. Elsewhere, dishes such as cuttlefish with chicory, Padrón peppers and Basque sauce pander to other palates, while everyone adores the duck-fat chips blasted with “speckled flavour-bombs” of salt. Fascinating regional wines and a ‘foodhall’ crammed with provisions are further reasons to visit this laid-back bolthole.

Comptoir Gascon perfectly fit the bill, and we had a really delicious, hearty meal...
